Why is the Rapture Debate Important?
There is no question that those who are saved will be raptured regardless of their rapture-timing opinions. So what is the big deal? Why should we argue about this issue? If rapture timing opinions aren’t necessary for salvation, why is this the hottest issue in the Church?
Watch this brief video for a clear explanation of why this debate is so important to each and every Christian.”
I commented: “Another good post Nelson. Personally, I don’t expect a pre-trib rapture, and as I’ve written in my books – I think the Great Apostasy will come when hundreds of millions of Christians who expected to be raptured away to safety before tribulation feel betrayed when they do have to face the horrors of the tribulation. How many will keep loving God like Job did when life seems like hell on Earth? As you explained, preparing these millions to be ready for the possibility of facing these trials is crucial evangelism.”
